MobiWork, based in Boca Raton, FL, announced at the end of June a new smartphone and cloud-based GPS tracking solution for businesses with a mobile workforce or resources, SmartTrack. Use any smartphone or tablet and install the application. Within minutes, you are ready to track not only your company vehicles, but the driver of that vehicle as well.
I can see those privacy flags waving out there. MobiWork has addressed this by allowing SmartTrack to be configured using geofencing, which will calculate the amount of time each worker spends at predetermined locations, like project sites or customer locations, rather than tracking every GPS location the worker may visit throughout the day.
Possible Uses of SmartTrack
Use SmartTrack to keep tabs on your mobile customer service staff. Customize the app to track either the time a worker spends at each and every customer site they visit throughout the day, or track how much time a group of workers spends at the site. Set it up to alert via SMS or email whenever the phones or tablets enter or exit a specific GPS location as well.
SmartTrack is also handy for monitoring vehicles or workers. Use it to follow the movement of vehicles in your company’s fleet or the workers themselves throughout the work day, week, and even month with SmartTrack’s fully automated timesheets. This will allow you to track behavior, travel patterns, and efficiencies.
It is also a handy way to track and validate time and expenses. With travel times and distances recorded, as well as all time spent on-site, it is a snap to validate actual working hours, generate and validate expense reports, as well as customer invoices.
Founder and CEO of MobiWork, Hervé Rivère, said, “We have spent three years developing a portfolio of patented software components that form the operating baseline for MobiWork’s solutions. SmartTrack has been designed from the ground up to be a high value tracking solution that extends the realm of traditional GPS tracking usage.”
If your business requires a little more than location tracking, simply upgrade to MobiWork MWS. This is everything you need to manage your mobile workforce, empowering your workforce while improving visibility, productivity, and the overall quality of the customer experience.
All MobiWork solutions are offered in four languages: English, Spanish, French and Portuguese. There are many installations successfully being used in the USA, South America, Argentina, India, France, and Autralia.
